- Charles Sturt’s Dr Dale Nimmo will discuss Australia’s bushfire recovery in a webinar presented by The Conversation and National Library of Australia
An animal ecology expert from Charles Sturt University in Albury-Wodonga has been invited to appear in a webinar to discuss the 2019-2020 bushfires and what is still ahead for Australia’s bushfire recovery.
Dr Dale Nimmo, an animal ecologist in the Charles Sturt Institute for Water, Land and Society, will appear in the webinar, ‘From the ashes: Australia Re-imagined’, presented by The Conversation and National Library of Australia on Friday 19 June from 6pm to 7pm.
The webinar will focus on the impact of the bushfires on individuals, communities, animals and the environment and explore what will rise from the ashes in the months and years ahead.
Dr Nimmo has a broad interest in how 'big' disturbances – such as fire, drought, and land clearing – influence biodiversity, and has written several articles for The Conversation on the impact of the bushfires on animals and post-bushfire recovery for plants and animals.
He will be joined by fellow panellists from the University of Canberra, Assistant Professor in psychology Petra Buergelt, and Professor in design and the built environment, Barbara Norman.
The Conversation’s Environment and Energy Editor Nicole Hasham will chair the panel.
